How sustainability and corporate purpose can be a competitive advantage for Singapore SMEs?

Ms. Fang Eu-Lin from PwC Singapore talked about SMEs in Singapore and their sustainability and corporate purposes. From her perspective, sustainability is not on the agenda for many small and medium-sized enterprises as many prior problems exist for them to solve daily. These efforts and capital can be luxuries for SMEs unless necessary making support and incentives more important. The companies and enterprises that start their process now will get the advantage in funding availability, brand positioning, and market accessibility as it is not an obligation yet. Transmitting the right message and putting the right narrative for SME’s becomes crucial. 

Doing Good is Good Business – Why Sustainability Matters? -Panel Discussion 

In this part, a panel discussion happened between many professionals in this industry. According to the different professionals, doing good is a good business like the panel title, but it cannot be done quickly in the current framework. Businesses are meant to generate profit continuously but this concept is no longer applicable to many.  The stakeholder concept is one of the concepts that are no longer applicable, and it shall be transformed into a shareholder concept while this change must be done at all levels. Involvement of employees is crucial for companies ad sustainability ideas and approaches are everyone’s mission; It’s collaborative and transparent. People should be educated and integrated about these topics to apply them on a daily level and use them in their lifestyle. For this, proper examples for leaders are crucial.
